CROSS PLAINS, Wis. (SPECTRUM NEWS) -- With trails and parks being one of the few outdoor activities still open for families to take part in, it might be a good time to learn about nature together.
The Ice Age Trail Alliance, the group that manages Wisconsin’s longest scenic trail, has put resources online for way you and your kids can learn about nature together. The Ice Age Trail alliance has developed curriculum throughout the past few years to aid teachers with field trips to the trail, something that is on hiatus due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
As long as responsible social distancing is practiced, Amy Lord with the Ice Age Trail Alliance says, it can be a good time to learn about science in action and to ask important questions.
“I think it is an awesome way for everyone to learn. Ask those questions. You may not know the answers but you have your journal. You can jot those questions down and its a learning opportunity to go find out the answers,” says Lord
